John Williams might quickly be making his last journey to a galaxy far, far.
In an interview with radio station KUSC, the famous author stated that the upcoming Episode IX will more than likely be the last time he ratings a Star Wars film.
“We know J.J. Abrams is preparing one now that I will hopefully do next year for him,” Williams stated. “I look forward to it, and we’ll round out a series of nine that will be quite enough for me.”
The 86- year-old Williams has actually scored all 8 of the primary Star Wars motion pictures, with Michael Giacchino dealing with the music for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. With 51 Academy Award elections, Williams is the second-most-nominated person of perpetuity, simply behind Walt Disney with 59.
Williams likewise exposed that his preferred character in the brand-new movies is Daisy Ridley’s Rey, who he “so enjoyed in The Force Awakens.” In reality, it was Ridley who made him most wish to be included with The Last Jedi and the as-yet-untitled ninth movie.
” Last year when [producer] Kathy Kennedy called me up and stated, ‘Would you do the music for The Last Jedi?’ I stated to her, ‘Is Daisy in it?'” Williams stated with a laugh. “And she said yes, so I said yes!”
Williams likewise commemorated the late Carrie Fisher, who passed away prior to the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi
“I think it possibly might be argued that she did her best work in this last film,” he stated. “I remember so well the scene between Luke and Leia where they meet, and it’s really very deeply touching, I thought. I didn’t know Carrie very well, but I always enjoyed her humor and her wit, and it’s a great loss. She made quite an impression worldwide in her role as Princess Leia.”
Abrams is going back to direct the untitled Episode IX, which is arranged to strike theaters Dec. 20, 2019.Related youtube video: (not from post)
